Comedian Talk Show Appearances: Week of January 30

The pick of the week goes to Toronto’s Mark Forward, appearing on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson this Thursday night. Here’s what you don’t know about his appearance: it was in the can three months ago. If you’ve ever wondered why Ferguson can’t be bothered to get up from his desk and walk over to greet the comic, it’s because that kind of wardrobe continuity is damn near impossible (seriously, this isn’t the Colbert Report, folks). Regular viewers will have picked up on how often the show pre-tapes segments, but comics in particular are handy for shuffling around and plunking anywhere they’re needed. Hopefully Forward opted not to do a Halloween chunk.
